When Jack Bauer returns to duty he will gear up and take aim overseas: across the pond in London, FOX announced.

"24: Live Another Day," a 12-episode event series, will debut summer 2014. Emmy Award winner Kiefer Sutherland reprises his role as Bauer and will face bad guys in England.

"'24' has always had such a global sensibility," Sutherland said in a news release. "But to be able to tell this intense '24'-style story with the beauty of Europe's history and architecture as the backdrop is going to be fascinating. Hopefully, by the time you're finished watching an episode, you'll feel like you've been there...on the edge of your seat."

The original "24" television series ran for eight seasons from 2001 through 2010, winning the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Seasons 1 through 6 were set primarily in Los Angeles. Season 7 was set in Washington, D.C., and Season 8 took place in New York.

The show's signature real-time format meant that each season featured 24 episodes chronicling events unfolding over 24 hours. The new event series, although only 12 episodes, will also tell a story that takes place over 24 hours.

Celebrity daughter and TV host Kelly Osborne recently showed off getting an IV drip. But she wasn't at a hospital. She was at home. She is one of many celebrities using expendable income on intravenous drips filled with things like saline, potassium, anti-inflammatory or anti-nausea meds, or vitamin B12 to help them recover from a hangover or exhaustion.
